Happy 25th Anniversary, Stella!

Twenty five years ago this month, KYW-TV in Philadelphia, while still an embattled NBC affiliate, premiered a late-night horror show that followed Saturday Night Live.  The show's title?  What else, Saturday Night Dead.  And yes, I was in cahoots with the hostess, Stella.  Her real name BTW was Karen Scioli, and she's still around working with Ross Britain on WOGL-FM.  If you want to learn more about her, there's a video about local horror movie hosts called American Scary, and check out the website for more info, and where to buy the DVD. So here's a ghost, er, toast to Stella and the opening clip from a 1986 episode.
